« on: Fri, 17 July 2015, 13:28:17 »

I got codeine when mine were removed.  Didn't end up using any of it though.

I ended up using the codeine when I had mine removed.

Graphic description of bodily functions below:
More
Despite best intentions and proper salt water rinses, my jaw got infected a few days after the surgery.  The back of my jaw became very swollen, I don't remember the exact size, but let's just call it golf ball sized.  It hurt a great deal.  The infection occurred over the weekend, and the dentist/orthodontist was closed.  Our town had no emergency dental services center, and we would not have been able to afford it anyway. 

Eventually the pressure of the swelling was relieved when the infected area popped.  I still remember how it tasted like really gross flu snot - but it filled my mouth.  The consistency was of runny brown gravy.  It flowed through my teeth.  I could feel the warmth of my gums change as it did.  I gathered up kleenex to catch what I could before  I could make it to a sink.  I had to just hold my mouth open and let it ooze out. 

My mother came to help me with it.  She, not being the one with pus in her mouth, told me I should use my tongue to milk out as much as I could.  I pushed at it from all angles with my tongue to squeeze out the last bits of the infected fluids.  If I thought my entire mouth was filled with the putrid humor, I was wrong.  By moving my tongue around it got into nooks and crannies to ensure that flavor stayed with me for days.  The taste of blood was my refuge as I pushed longer and longer.  That sweet iron-rich nectar began to overtake the sickly mucous and I knew the area was purged. 

The pain of using an alcohol based listerine rinse was immense as it sloshed around the open wound, but it was worth it.  That helped burn away some of my taste buds.  Saline rinses helped to clean out the area as well, and salt in the wound hurt much less than I worried it would. 

On one hand, relieving the pressure helped with the superficial pain of having my gums stretched beyond their natural limits.  On the other hand, I was VERY sore for over a week.


I guess this is just a roundabout way of saying that you should be thankful you have a preemptive batch of codeine in case something goes awry.

Dental pain is the worst because you can't get any "distance" from it.

I have had several tooth-related problems over the years, and I am glad for the strongest pain medicine that they will give me.

But after the first few doses I get seriously messed-up, I can't imagine how anybody likes it on a regular basis.

And be very good and serious with those antibiotics - that is what keeps all that foul horribleness at bay after the fact.
"We must adjust to changing times and still hold to unchanging principles." – The bold and brilliant dream which excited the founders of this Nation still awaits its consummation. Ours was the first society openly to define itself in terms of both spirituality and of human liberty. It is that unique self–definition which has given us an exceptional appeal, but it also imposes on us a special obligation: to take on those moral duties which, when assumed, seem invariably to be in our own best interests.
The American dream endures. We must once again have full faith in our country – and in one another. I believe America can be better. We can be even stronger than before. Let our recent mistakes bring a resurgent commitment to the basic principles of our Nation, for we know that if we despise our own government we have no future. We recall in special times when we have stood briefly, but magnificently, united. In those times no prize was beyond our grasp.
But we cannot dwell upon remembered glory. We cannot afford to drift. Our Government must at the same time be both competent and compassionate. Our Nation can be strong abroad only if it is strong at home. And we know that the best way to enhance freedom in other lands is to demonstrate here that our democratic system is worthy of emulation. To be true to ourselves, we must be true to others. We must not behave in foreign places so as to violate our rules and standards here at home, for we know that the trust which our Nation earns is essential to our strength.

This post reminded me that I have to get all four of mine yanked.  Not looking forward to it at all.  I hear dry sockets make you want to die.

My top two came out perfect,  but the bottom 2 let me down.. they were growing diagonally into my jawbone..

So I just had the bottom two removed today..



I'm slightly enjoying the pain..  My life's normally too carefree..  This gives me some perspective and dimensionality.

God, imagine way back when, when they pulled teeth with nothing but some booze..

Or Civil-War hospitals..

Or People with Real-problems..

the reason it says to not rinse mouth is because of the potential for a dry socket. same reason why you were probably told to not smoke or drink milkshakes. Dry socket= when the pulpy red bulb thats left in your jaw after the extraction, comes free from negative air pressure in your mouth and it pops out, which exposes your jaw etc to the air and more bacteria. **** hurts.

This post scares me so much. I was supposed to get mine taken out as a precaution like a year ago, but it didn't look like any of them were actually going to impact from the x-rays so I just didn't.

Had all four of mine taken out same day. Wide awake and I forgot to eat earlier. Felt dizzy as **** from the blood loss. I had to have "surgery" to get them out since they needed to be out for my braces. Wasn't nearly as bad as people made it out to be. Did get drugged up after for the pain tho. Hate the dentist. Sound of your teeth separating from your gums is terribad.

Exactly the same as my girlfriend.

She was told to remove them as a precaution about... Let's say 4 years ago.
Everything looked okay though and they never felt like they were coming in

A few months ago she started feeling some pain and what do you know, here they come at full speed.

She always put it off because she was afraid to go under, but of course, that's what's gonna happen in a few weeks.

Doc said it's a bigger deal because some nerves are being hit because of how they're impacted. If she would have gotten them out earlier, it wouldn't have caused her so much pain and discomfort.


I would suggest doing it while you can and before things have the chance of getting worse


Of course, I say this while I have no knowledge of when/if mine will come out.

Yes, you do.

And accept whatever pain and antibiotic pills they offer you.

And follow the hygiene rules to the letter for at least a week, or until you feel confident that all is well.

To be true to ourselves, we must be true to others. We must not behave in foreign places so as to violate our rules and standards here at home, for we know that the trust which our Nation earns is essential to our strength.

This post scares me so much. I was supposed to get mine taken out as a precaution like a year ago, but it didn't look like any of them were actually going to impact from the x-rays so I just didn't.

I really just don't want to be put under at all.  :'(

it's kinda funny actually.

they put the mask on, i turned my head to the left and by the time i turned it back to center, the procedure was done.

i felt groggy, but there was literally no sleep phase (the entire thing took 1.5 secs from my perspective).  my eyes were open an i was conscious as far as i was concerned.

EDIT:

i'm told some people have air pressure problems on takeoff/landing because of 'air pockets' created by the wisdom teeth as you age.  some jobs literally make you remove those teeth before you get to work.

Yes, you do.

And accept whatever pain and antibiotic pills they offer you.

And follow the hygiene rules to the letter for at least a week, or until you feel confident that all is well.
 

I had mine done awake..

They take this scary big needle and shoot you 4 times in the gums with local anesthetic..

It kinda.... hurts initially, but about 10 seconds into it.. my whole chin and lower jaw was numb..

They did the whole cutting and teeth-pulling, and I didn't feel a thing..

I have 3/4 of my wisdom teeth coming in. I should probably go get them removed... but I'm terrified of the whole ordeal. And of the bill.  :eek:

Yea, I've tried signing up. Maybe I'm just doing it wrong? But the cheapest plan I can get is like $280 a month and doesn't cover much at all. According to obamacare, I'm eligible for coverage but MS doesn't offer it? I don't know. Adulting is hard  :'(
 
"Review the table below with your eligibility results. Booper - Based on the information you provided, the new federal health care law provides that you could be eligible for free or low cost health care through Mississippi Health Benefits. However, the state of MS has chosen not to offer you this new health care coverage at this time.
You are not required to pay a penalty for not having health insurance because of your income and because the state of MS declined to expand Mississippi Health Benefits to cover individuals in your situation."

Ouch.  In other words, we're protesting the change, so **** you. 

I know there are dental schools that are cheaper at times and that you can often work out payment plans.

Thanks! I'll look into the dental schools and ask about payment plans. The teeth don't hurt or anything so I've been putting it off.

One thing I have learned for-sure is this:

IBUPROFEN for tooth pain.  The Acetaminophen, it does nothing.  Hydrocodone tends to be bundled with acetaminophen, which is dumb but it is what it is. 

If 600mg/6hrs of ibuprofen won't let you live a functional life, you pretty much have to take the narcotics.  Alternate every three hours with motrin if you have codeine/tylenol.  When you can feel the narcotics are making you tipsy instead of just taking the edge off, stop taking them.

...coming from someone who had 4x impacted teeth out at once and spent basically a week out of his mind on narcotics.  My bed pillow was hugely stained from seepage during sleep from the surgical wounds.  It was bad.  If you are being told "get these out now, as a precaution" get a second opinion and then get it done.  Anesthesiologists are doctors too, and they don't get to keep their medical licenses by killing people.  You count maybe Ten through Six and wake up.  It is NO big deal to undergo general anesthesia.
Jesus loves you.

I put it off as well, for almost 2 years.  instead of one big pull like now.. I essentially suffered 5-6 mini-episodes of intense pain caused by impaction against my jaw bone...


If I could go back, I would not wait.


But it also depends on your teeth,  check the orientation in all axis.. 

My bottom ones were good for y and z, but screwed up on x-axis

I had mine taken out at age 18 (32 now) and chose the general anesthesia route, just wanted it to be over as fast as possible.

The day I showed up for my procedure, turns out I knew the nurse who would be assisting that day. They hooked me up to heart monitors and started the IV and gave me something to relax until the dentist would be in. Was watching something on the television when I moved a bit in the chair and one of the heart monitor pad things (I can't remember the name of them right now) came off. Machine went flat line and the nurse came running in and since I was feeling pretty relaxed, I half-cocked a smile and said "I think I'm dead".

Before I knew it, I was awake and being sent home with some Vicodin. Slapped some bags of frozen peas on my face when I got home and went into work a couple days later. Just took over the counter stuff for the pain, which led to me selling the Vicodin  ;D

You sold the vicodin?

what was the street price back then..

It's only worth a few bucks per pill these days because it's prescribed for literally any-ol'-pain.

I don't even remember (or what dosage they were), but probably not that much.
